  1. aluminum foot locker w black walnut and copper stitching

    Here is my latest project-nothing special, just made a lid for an old aluminum tote I picked up at an auction for $11. It had a ratty plywood top which I wanted to keep, but was just too far gone and pretty plain, but the underside was cool so instead I turned it upside down and jammed it into...
  2. Replacement tote for a Stanley hand plane

    Here's the end result of my adventures in hand plane tote making. I think I put maybe 3 hours total work into this project. I learned a few new things, indeed made a few mistakes, but the end result fits like a glove. I used an off cut of Curly Maple a friend of mine had laying around for...
  3. Another tool tote

    Made this for my son-in-law 32th birthday. The ends are 3/4" maple, sides are 1/2" maple, bottom is 1/4" baltic birch plywood, 1 inch dowel for the handle and I turned the handle ends out of a scrap piece of walnut I had lying around. Finished it with shellac (I was running out of time!!!)...
  4. Plane tote for restore Ohio Jointer Plane

    I bought an old Ohio Tool Jointer Plane for $30 on ebay and it needed restored and a new plane tote. I restored it all, repainted it, removed all the rust and then I needed a new tote. Well I had some maple scraps laying around, so I glued up 2 pieces, traced the old one and went to work...
  5. Horse Grooming Tote - First Project

    First post on LJ, be kind =) Up until this project I had only build a few jigs (sacrificial tablesaw fence, jointing jig for table saw, box finger jig, and a thickness cutting jig for the table saw) and done a bunch of practicing. So yea, I am pretty much a newbie. My wife asked me to make a...
  6. Oak Tool Tote for Nephew

    This is a late Christmas Present for my 7 year old nephew who spends just as much time in the garage trying to build things as I do. I filled it with a basic starter woodworking set per Paul Seller's recommendations. The tool tote is simple housing dado joints all done by hand made with...
  7. Zebrawood Tote & Knob Sets for Stanley No. 4

    I am in the process of restoring a bunch of old Stanley/Bailey planes, and many of them had broken or damaged totes/knobs. This was my first attempt at making my own tote/knob set. I chose Zebrawood, and I decided to make 2 knobs and 2 totes. Obviously, the knobs were turned on a lathe. The...
  8. For the wine fans

    I made some growler totes earlier this year and people asked where the wine caddy's were, so here you go, wine caddy with removable dividers.
  9. Carpentry tool tote

    I've got some timberframing projects coming up, and as I collected the tools I need for that, I decided I needed a tote to carry them around in. This one is modeled on the tote Roy Underhill used, and is described in one of his books. Rather than having all four sides lean outwards, I decided to...
  10. Bocce Ball Tote

    I have had a bocce ball set for sometime, but have never really liked the cheap metal carrying that came with it. I was messing around in the garage and decided it'd be nice to build something nicer to hold the set of balls. I had a bunch of maple that was taking up space, so that's what I used...
  11. 2017 Beer Tote entry

    2017 Beer Tote swap entry, made with spalted hackberry from a fallen tree in our subdivision. sorry for the pics but I have no idea why they do this. I have attempted to rotate and save but then they show up facing the opposite direction. oh well.
  12. Timber Framer's Toolbox

    Made from Eastern White Pine with a Colonial Maple stain. I forgot how difficult it can be to work with soft pine. It dents and scratches with a light touch. Tools have to be razor sharp (mine where not) or you will crush the fibers rather than cut through them. Tearout is awful and cracks...
  13. Growler Tote

    Made a growler tote for one of my coworkers. It's is made out of curly maple and a curly walnut handle. Project is finished with sealcoat shellac and General Finishes HP polycrylic. I engraved a cut throat trout onto the front panel and used a light brown analine dye to make it stand out on the...
  14. Beer Swap 2017

    Here is the tote I made for the swap that went to Gary, doubleG469. I was a little conflicted during this build because I had an idea in my mind that would just not come together for me. But in the 11th hour this design hit me and I think it really came off well. The use of stainless rod gives...
  15. Bellota saw handle

    Hi to all, this is the new handle I made for an old spanish rip cut saw, "Bellota´s trademark". The plate has 40 or 50 years old (I think) and it is much better than the "bellota" news. It had a terrible red straight handle, and now is like part of your arm. The handle is made of apple wood (An...
  16. Simple Tool Tote

    I went into the shop today to start work on a kitchen table, and somehow, ended up with this. Sometimes I need to do a simple, little project, to "clear my palette" before starting something big. I'd recently signed up for a one day hand tool woodworking class on dovetails, and we're required...
  17. Growler Totes

    I made these growler totes to sell at my local feed store. Wood used is sycamore and walnut. I wrapped the grips with jute cord. Thank you for looking.

    i have a friend that owns a salon so i made her these to put under the mirrors. regular pine.
  19. Finishing Tote?

    I'm not really sure what to call this thing. When it comes to be "finishing" time, I find that the stuff I am looking for is all over the place. When I am done, the stuff is everywhere in different places it doesn't belong. I decided to make a little tote for it. It's made from left over...
  20. Quick and dirty lathe tote!

    OK. So here was my problem. I have to take my lathe outside to use it. My little shop just won't work with the mess. (I'm sure there are many others who have to also). That's no problem, but when you take the lathe out, that's just the start! You have to run the extension cord, get your tools...
